Taking Panoramic Pictures

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Take your images further with larger-than-life shots
Many new digital cameras offer a feature called panorama stitch mode. It allows you to create panoramic shots by combining up to three shots together into one large picture. Here's some things to keep in mind while using it.
 
 
Plan your picture
 
 
 

Your camera is preset to stitch together a certain number of images. Most use three.
 

Compose your vision within that number to get the desired effect.
 
Overlap your pictures
 
 
 

To help you stitch together pictures, panoramic stitch mode gives you a slice of the previous image in your viewfinder.
 

For a seamless stich, line up your next shot over the slice from the previous picture.
 
Watch the seams
 
 
 

Your camera automatically edits pictures while stitching them. This works best on static objects that don't change position from picture to picture, like background scenery.
 

Try not to place subjects that move, like people, at the edges of the photograph. If they get too close, they will enter the stitching area, which could result in undesired cut-offs.
 
 
Generally, people use panoramic mode to take dramatic shots of beautiful landscapes – which works great. But it's even more fun to experiment. It's digital, after all – you can always delete any shots you don't want.
 
 
 
 
Go vertical
 

Panorama mode stitches vertical pictures just as well as horizontal ones
 

Shoot vertical pictures of cascading waterfalls or towering skyscrapers – and get the full effect.
 
Show the whole scene
 
Take individual shots around the dinner table, or a huge stadium.
 
Use camera trickery
 

Show one subject moving across a panoramic shot.
 

Take shots of your child in different places across your front yard – somersaulting on the grass, or swinging from a tree. The result is a fun, three dimensional image your kids will love.
